Long Description:
Created in 1987 by artist Paul Marco (1911-1997) his sculptures exhibit a variety of influences. The unique, rustic forms of his works recall the primitive setting of his home in Maine, while the animal forms and mask-like faces of his figures reflect the artist's interest in and study of African sculpture and masks.

Located on the grounds of the Mennello Museum of American Art, on East Princeton St. in Orlando, Florida. Between North Mills Av. and Camden Rd.

The sculpture can been seen 24 hours a day for free in the sculpture garden. The museum sits on a lake and has a large grassy area filled with many different sculptures for the public to view. Is well maintained, has sidewalks, chairs for sitting, large shade trees and a bridge to cross the lake. Spend some quiet time viewing the sculptures, lake & water fowl.

Free unless you decide to visit the musuem for a current exhibition.
The Museum also seeks to enrich the public through special exhibitions, publications, and programs that celebrate outstanding traditional and contemporary American artists.
